The Aharonov-Casher (AC) effect is theoretically examined in a mesoscopic ring with an embedded quantum dot in a multi-terminal geometry. We examine a realistic model for such a system with spin-orbit interaction in the ring. A spin-polarized current can be generated in a three-terminal device even in the absence of magnetic field, whereas it cannot in a two-terminal device. The spin polarization is enhanced by the resonant tunneling around the Coulomb peak and Kondo effect in the Coulomb blockade regime. The efficiency for the spin polarization is discussed in realistic devices.
